In welcome news for the Sikh community before 2008 begins, the International Monetary Fund (IMF) reversed a ban on kirpans at its Washington, DC headquarters.

The reversal comes as a result of the Sikh Coalition's intervention. It is the second major reversal allowing kirpans in the workplace in the past two months. In October, AT&T reversed a kirpan ban at a facillity in Ohio.
